Black +White Makes Everything Right in the Perfect Old Town Engagement

Whoever said the classic pairing of black and white was boring clearly hasn’t seen Leilani and Danny’s chic Old Town engagement session. Because these two? Well, they’re anything but. Donning the chicest apperal complete with the sweetest sunlit kisses, Audra Wrisley captured their session to share and thankfully we’ve got it all waiting for you in The Vault!

From Audra WrisleyLeilani and Danny’s chic Old Town engagement session is the epitome of spring and romance! I couldn’t be more excited for these two and their beautiful wedding day coming up this Fall, and we loved spending the day capturing their laid back and fun-loving relationship. Leilani and Danny happen to be stunning and have killer style, and their chic black & white aesthetic was the perfect dramatic look for their city shoot in Old Town, Alexandria. Blending the city streets, southern brick & ivy nooks, a classic car and the historic waterfront, their shoot was such a beautiful mix of old Virginia and new.

European Garden Bridal Inspiration

Pause everything, because you’re going to want to soak up every bit of this beauty. With Michael and Carina Photography behind the lens it’s garden Bridal like you’ve never seen before. I’m talking lush florals, beautiful paper goods and one stunning dress. So, get scrolling and soak it all up in the gallery!

From Michael and Carina Photography… This dreamy bridal session is inspired by European gardens. Simple, elegant and organic. It is almost as if the bride is wandering through a secret garden, smelling the flowers and feeling the earth under her feet. The soft color tones and lush floral arrangements add to the organic feel of the photos.

This bridal session has it all: beautiful paper goods, florals and a stunning dress – and yet it is simple. Nothing is meant to overshadow the feeling of getting lost in that overgrown garden, in that smell of the blossoms…
